MEGA CM 3.2: How effective is the provision of youth friendly health services in reducing the rates of teenage pregnancy?

Background

Although the rates of teenage pregnancy have gone down in recent years, the national average stands at 25% of the girls aged 15 to 19 years is already a mother or pregnant with her first child. The major causes for these rates are early marriages, lack of access to Sexual Reproductive Health information and services, poverty and cultural beliefs. Youth friendly health services have been presented as one of the possible solutions to these challenges because they provide information and services which guide young people to make informed reproductive health decisions. On the other hand, some people argue that access to these services alone will not effectively reduce the rates of teenage pregnancy.

Question

A - Very effective.
B - Somewhat effective.
C - Not effective at all.
